Mastroberardino

Irpinia Falanghina DOC Morabianca 2019

Campania, Italia

This nectar is a 100% Falanghina from 10 years old vineyards located between 350 and 450m asl. The crop is manually harvested at the end of October. The grapes ferment in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and then the divine juice refines in the bottle for two/three months before the release. Salute!

Appearance

The wine has a yellow-lemon color. The intensity is pale.

Nose

The aroma intensity is medium. There are light hints of nectarine and mineral notes of flint and wet stone.

Palate

In the mouth, the wine is dry with a high level of acidity. The alcohol is medium (i.e. 13,5 %). The flavor intensity is medium plus, with the mineral notes taking the scene, with feeble flavor of nectarine and bitter almond. Sip by sip, a remarkable sensation of metal comes out, slightly mitigated by a savory one. The lasting is medium plus.

Conclusion

Definitively not my favorite white nectar. The aromatic palette is quite simple and the evolution almost absent. There are overflowing mineral notes, sensations reminiscent of steel (or at least as I guess steel can taste), and that’s it. A feeble hint of nectarine gives a bit of sweetness, but it is not enough to make me desire to uncork another bottle.

Final vote: 84
